Satellite TV For PC – Satellite Direct Reviews

Before starting I would like to say that if you do not have a internet connection then do not even bother reading further. This Satellite TV For PC software from Satellite Direct works only on a internet connection or wifi connection. The reason why I make this note is because some people go to cyber cafe to get their internet related work done.

Next, I am saying that it is a review for satellite direct, well these are my personal experiences all the way since 2006. There have been more than 15 product upgrades and the satellite tv for pc software gave a alert to download the latest version, most of the times it worked fine but I had to un install and install the latest version manually couple of times. Well once I had to un install twice and reboot my computer before installing the fresh version. Apart from that there was no problem in downloading the upgraded software.

I have satellite tv for pc sofware installed on my laptop also. This gives me an added advantage to carry my mobile tv along with me even if I am going to beach or camping on a weekend. I did not get such facility with my regular satellite connection.

The quality of channels is good, well better than my cable. Big plus being that I can watch my national channels even being 7000 miles away and they are at no extra cost. Had I used Dish Network I would end up paying almost 100 dollars just for my national channels every month. Living so far from home I still feel connected with my country and I do not pay anything extra for all these channels.

I paid some $39 almost 6 years ago and it was not a bad investment at that time, this is what I realize so many years down the line. To add to it, my kids have learned how to operate it and find their cartoon channels and the younger one is just about 4 years old. Well she does drawings in MS Paint so locating cartoon channels in Satellite Direct is a piece of cake for her.

There are about 3500 odd channels from across the world that they claim these days, but some channels do not work. But hey there is still plenty you get for your moneys worth but moving from one part of the globe to other in matter of a click.

Can You Really Watch TV Channels Online Without Cable Or Satellite?

Everyone has their favorite television shows that they hate to miss, but sometimes getting to the television in time for them is just impossible. If a DVR is not in the budget, there are ways for people to watch their favorite shows online. It is simple to watch new episodes of some of the best shows on television shortly after they air at on TV.

If someone has a specific show that they would like to watch, they should try checking the website of the network that airs the show. Many network websites offer free streaming of full episodes so that everyone can see their favorite programs. The episodes are usually available online in their entirety just one day after they come on television for the general public.

There are also many websites that offer live streaming of a variety of shows. The most popular of these sites is Hulu, which offers full episodes of popular shows as well as popular clips and trailers for upcoming films. Users can even sign up for Hulu plus in order to have access to the Hulu library on their home television or their compatible mobile device.

Before someone can begin enjoying their favorite television shows from their computer, they need to make sure that they have all of the proper software upgrades. Programs such as Flash video are constantly coming out with newer versions. If someone does not have the most recent version of the software they need, their video will be very slow or will not come in at all.

If someone cannot be at the television when their favorite show comes on, they still have options for watching it within the day. There are many websites online that offer free live streaming of television shows just a day after they come on television. Some even offer options for playing the videos on a television or smart phone, so they can truly be enjoyed anywhere.

The Problem For Broadcast TV

Television is now following a similar evolution, albeit in a roundabout fashion. Broadcast TV started out as free to its viewers. With just a few channels in any given broadcasting area, advertising rates were high and very profitable. But then Cable TV, and later Satellite Dish TV, arrived with dozens of channels being made available to the average viewer. This caused advertising rates per viewer to start falling like phone rates.

This presented a problem for Broadcast TV since their economic model did not let them compete well against Cable TV or Satellite Dish TV who charged monthly viewer fees. At first, viewers were willing to pay these monthly fees since they could get 10 times more channels than Broadcast TV could supply.

Revenge Of Broadcast TV

Now as if in some kind of ironic twist of justice, TV broadcast stations are finding a way to profit with low advertising rates and not charge their viewers any monthly fees by putting their shows and commercials on Internet TV. This works for a couple of reasons. First, they now have a worldwide audience for their shows (and commercials). And last but not least, their viewers tend to be much more highly targeted. For example, science fiction fans can watch from 5 to 10 previous episodes of their favorite shows on the Sci-Fi channel (SyFy.com) website for free in HD.

Viewers benefit by Internet TV in two ways. First, viewers now have access to literally thousands of channels worldwide — more than Cable TV and Satellite Dish TV combined. And, all channels are FTA (Free-To-Air) which do not charge any fees whatsoever to watch them. In the past, you could only access FTA channels with your own Satellite Dish setup, which cost thousands of dollars, and required you to know how to set it up and point it at the right satellites. Internet TV is totally different.

Internet TV Is Getting Popular

In April 2010, it was reported by TechCrunch.com that over 800,000 households have already dropped their cable and satellite subscriptions in favor of Internet TV. They also forecast that number to increase to 1.6 million people soon. For the complete story, search for “800,000 Households” at the TechCrunch.com web site.

Internet TV is still in its infancy, and currently requires a computer to access it. This was also true of Internet phone calls using VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) in the beginning as well. When handsets became available that integrated VoIP hardware and software directly into the handset, computers were no longer needed to make a VoIP phone call. So it is probably only a matter of time before our digital LCD and Plasma TV sets get direct Internet connectivity as well, and we will be able to watch our favorite Internet TV shows on them directly.

Getting Rid Of The Monthly Fees

With the current sluggish economy, people are looking for any way to get rid of their Cable TV and Satellite Dish TV monthly fees that just seem to keep increasing like health care premiums. Internet TV is fulfilling that demand, and with just a converter box and cable you can watch and hear it directly on your digital LCD or Plasma TV right now.

Satellite TV for PC – Real or a Scam?

Some people think that Satellite TV For PC is a scam, I do not blame them for their thinking. There are many reasons one of them being that people do not understand the working of a Satellite TV For PC. They are not enough educated about free-to-air satellite TV channels and video streaming over the internet. Well for readers who are well aware of these facts they will know that most of these satellite tv or cable tv channels are available for free via live streaming on the internet. Well not only that some paid and premium channels are also there in the list but they apply a delay of 5/10 minutes so that paid subscribers of satellite tv get due advantage, like when some live game is going on.

Here are some reasons people give when you ask them why they think satellite TV on PC is a scam:

1. How can Satellite Tv For PC come with absolutely no subscription fees or any monthly fees?
Well there are many national tv channels in every country that are free, they do not charge any subscription fees from the viewers but on the other hand they do charge all their advertisers a lot of money as viewer base is huge being a free tv channel. The Satellite TV software collects and organizes all the TV streams from the internet [these live streams are exposed by channel provider on a specific IP Address and Port at absolutely no cost] so that you can be able to watch them. Well every satellite TV company that installs a dish also do the same thing, they route these live streams via their satellite to your TV. Similarly the Satellite TV For PC software collects these streams and are already programmed by the provider of the software, but now you can watch the same channels on your computer instead of a TV.

2. Are these satellite tv software’s illegal and hence a scam?
Satellite TV for PC software is not illegal. If you visit the website of some TV channels, you will be able to watch their TV programs from their website itself for free. Such Tv Channels expose the telecast of their programs on a specific IP/Port also called live streaming. Moreover your regular satellite companies like Dish etc also capture these live streams and configure in them in the software on their servers/satellites to pass it on to your television via setup box which sits near your television. Satellite TV for PC software is a programmed to use all these free live TV Streams from across the world. This software was first introduced about 7/8 years ago and had this been illegal then the websites providing these types of software would have been shut down by now along with satellite providers like Dish etc.

3. Some people think Satellite TV for PC is a scam as it is not possible to watch satellite TV channels on your PC.
Well about 8/10 years ago it real would have been a great news, as internet was slow. Even voice signals were transmitted very poorly leave video signals aside. Nowadays internet speeds have increased many folds across the globe making it possible for you to watch videos from Youtube.com easily along with many  TV channels that regularly stream high quality TV programs over the internet so that their viewers can watch TV programs even when they are not at home on their computers. Think of Satellite TV for PC software as bookmarks to all live streams from around the internet and allows you to watch these channels on your PC at home or on your laptop when you are away.

4. Some people think it’s a scam because they are confused about satellite TV for PC software and TV tuner cards (or PC TV cards).
There is absolutely no extra hardware requirement for Satellite TV for PC software. Simply install it on your computer and you are ready to watch 1000’s of channels in no time.

5. Some people say that they downloaded the software and then it asked for an update couple of months later and never worked again.
As there are new TV Channels that are being released constantly, so this software needs to be upgraded to the same reason. Whenever your software tells that an upgrade is available and you are stuck in middle and stops working simply uninstall the Satellite TV For PC software and download the fresh software which will be available at the same url [save the download link that you receive after your purchase] where you first downloaded it from. It is due to these constant upgrades that the cost of this software is not a little more than when I purchased it 3 years back. Now a days it costs about 49$’s. What are you waiting for grab your copy of Satellite TV For PC Software now before the price is increased.

How Does Internet TV Work

Internet television offers a new way of receiving videos that uses very different technology to older forms of transmission such as broadcast, cable and satellite TV. It is a versatile form that can be used on a wide range of devices in addition to conventional televisions. It offers a lot of control over what, how and when you watch, but it can also be used to create a very similar experience to conventional TV viewing.

Internet TV works in the same way, however, it is being viewed. It begins with the conversion of videos into a suitable format for online transmission. This is done through a process known as encoding, which is achieved using special software components called codecs. The resulting digital files can easily be broken into packets of data that can be sent over the internet.

Once encoded, the video is placed on a server, from where internet users will be able to access and view it. They may do this through an internet browser, a special piece of software designed for watching Internet television, or a digital Internet TV box connected to a television. Servers can be configured to control the ways in which the video can be accessed.

When someone watches a video, it will be sent to them over the internet from the server in small chunks or packets of data that have been labeled with the recipient’s IP address and encoded with the necessary identifying information. The computer, mobile device or television on which the content is to be viewed receives the data packets and decodes them using the encoded identifying information to understand the file. The digital file is then converted into a watch able video using the appropriate codecs, and the video appears on the screen. In some cases, functions such as pause, rewind and fast forwards can be used to control the viewing experience, although the exact tools that are available depend upon the type of internet TV that is being watched.

A huge variety of videos are available online. It is possible to access conventional television stations, independent productions. There are live broadcasts as well as on demand, pre-recorded videos online, and you can even purchase online movies or TV program rentals or access television programs that you have missed on your normal TV. Some videos can be viewed free, while others are available on a subscription or pay per view basis. Some videos can only be viewed within certain countries.

Internet television is made possible by high-speed internet connections, so if you have a slow or dial-up connection watching videos online can be near impossible. As high-speed internet coverage spreads and online video content becomes more easily available, it has been suggested that the future of television may lie online. The versatility, superior control and variety of material available online are all important advantages that are likely to make internet TV increasingly popular in the future.

How To Watch Satellite TV On PC Without The Dish

Watching satellite TV on PC without a dish is a completely new concept to many people. This article would reveal how you can enjoy satellite TV without any messy satellite dish installation.

For those of us who live in remote parts of the world, we are used to watching satellite television using a dish. This dish basically acts like an antenna to receive/transmit signals to and from satellites, allowing us to watch satellite television. The set up of a satellite television can be laborious for folks who are not too techie. The installation involves getting the satellite dish erected outdoor and fixing a low-noise block converter (LNB) on the dish. A receiver or decoder is also required in order to complete the installation. If this set-up sounds very complicated to you, you would be glad to know that you can now watch satellite TV on PC, without any complex installation.

Here are the basic hardware and computer requirements before you can watch satellite TV on PC:

PCTV Card – Your computer can act as a satellite television, with the monitor functioning as the screen. However, you would need to first enable your PC to receive and interpret the satellite TV channel feed using what we call a PCTV card. This card can be installed internally on the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) slot which attaches peripheral devices like the PCTV card to the motherboard of your computer. External PCTV cards are attached to your PC via the USB port. In both cases, please take note that internet connection must be established. If you are using an external card, remember to make sure you have a USB port. Otherwise you may need to purchase an adapter.

Internet Connection – Broadband connection at speeds no lesser than 512Kbytes is preferred. I will explain why. The quality of your satellite TV would be clearer and transmission would be faster and smoother with high connection speeds.

Computer Configuration – In order to watch satellite TV on PC, your PC has to satisfy some minimum requirements like having a minimum RAM speed of 128Mbytes and the CPU must be at least a Pentium 3. Nowadays, most computers are able to fulfill these conditions so it should bother you too much.

Optional Computer Peripherals – There are other optional computer components that would enhance your viewing experience such as installing a top-grade graphics card and sound card. It would be perfect if you can get hold of a sub-woofer or even a theater system that is compatible with your computer.

If you do not want to get into all this then simply go to our Download Satellite TV For PC Software page, follow the download link and get going instantly. No monthly bills and life time free upgrades.
